Police arrest 4 after armed robbery, car chase

Police arrested four suspects in an armed robbery and chase in East Anchorage Friday afternoon.

The suspects allegedly robbed a 19-year-old girl of her purse at gunpoint at the 7500 block of Boundary Avenue, which parallels the Glenn Highway, said Anchorage Police Department spokesman Lt. Dave Parker.

They fled by car, he said. An officer located a car matching the description given by the victim. When the car was pulled over, some of the suspects ran but were quickly apprehended on foot in the neighborhood between East 37th Avenue and MacInnes Street, Parker said.
